The advent of the Internet era has changed the way people get information. As a common phenomenon of social opinion, rumor forms a new force combined with the Internet, which no longer confined to specific groups, specific space-time, specific scope of transmission, its speed of transmission and impact increases quickly. Internet rumors have the characteristics of multi-subject, virtuality and emotional incitement, which have negative impacts on the value orientation, moral behavior and sense of responsibility for young students. College students, as the future builders of the country, their establishment of correct values, the cultivation of ethics and morality and the level of civic awareness directly affect the establishment of social order. Therefore, colleges and universities should take active steps to value students' network literacy education, cultivate students' awareness of the instrumentality and practicality of the network, maintain rational and critical cognition in the network information, and understand the characteristics of interactivity and the public opinion guidance of network information dissemination. The above aims are to improve young students' ability to identify network consensus, and reduce or even eliminate the impact of Internet rumors on young students. Young students should correctly understand the harm of Internet rumors, resist them and maintain network security and social stability.
